Members of the American Legion Post 44 in Marquette helped to kick off a full day of events and services in recognition of Memorial Day.
A handful of volunteers decorated Harlow Park with American flags this morning. The flags are a symbol of remembrance for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service for their country.
The group started placing flags around the park two years ago. The flags will also be placed at the for Flag Day, the 4th of July and Veteran’s Day.
